We liked it so much we came back for a second night

This tiny restaurant on a cobbled side street where many locals come to eat was a hit. We got a great meal at a good price. The head waiter was very nice and after the second night gave us a complimentary Corsican apperitif which was delicious. The chef was great fun too. Service was excellent... read more

The prices are low but the quality is really bad. The food is pre cooked, the service is even worst. The fish was smelly and covered with aged sauces. Better just to go to Mac Donald.

Very poor service quality. A real tourist trap. Kook and service personal are discussing and there is a bad feeling. Food is poor and not enough for the price. fast food cooking for restaurant price. We were more than disapointed. There was only one person friendly. very bad kitchen....stay away!

our former favorite restaurant in Cannes is under new management; everything is a little bit different, but what kind of disturbed me most were two things - first, the (former) boss is not around. He was the real old style chef/manager/owner etc. He knew you and when it was busy he took your orders and had time for some small... More

The chef cooked in front of me that I might know how to cook the fabulous meal he prepared. It was wonderful! This probably the best in Cannes maybe France. Return? Next time that we are in town. Should have found this sooner.

Excellent local restaurant situated in a small side cobbled street behind the main Port area of Cannes. Set menus are great value for money as are the local specialities - i.e. moules with various sauces. Lovely friendly owners. We always visit at least twice during our stay each June in Cannes. I hope restaurant will remain the same under the... More

Many of the restaurants near the waterfront in Cannes are disappointing so we were pleased to stumble on this one, particularly when the plat du jour was blanquette de veau, a savory, tender comfort food version of this classic that was delicious. Others had boeuf bourguignon or mussels and also said they were good. Service by Angelique was superb. This... More

We went to Le Riche-Lieu last month while on a day visit to Cannes and were enchanted by this little place, situated in Le Vieux Cannes, just behind the market, in a pedestrian street, a few steps only from the harbour. We had a lovely meal on the terrace; the portions were very generous, the ingredients very fresh and the... More
